I am grateful to the following people who have contributed in a significant way to the software of COSMIC over the 17 years since its inception:

The software has been compiled under IRIX 5.2 on the 4000 family of processors. It takes up about 20MBytes of disk space. It runs on IRIX 5.3 and 6.1 (R8000) without problems so far.
For pretty icons, copy xed.icon and xedsort.icon to /usr/lib/images. You must be 'su' to do this
The source code is written in FORTRAN with several C and C++ additions. Some SG-specific utilities are also included as well as some .exe files from other sources. The main software subroutines are held in a number of readable 'libraries'. Xedlibgen.f holds general molecule manipulations routines. xedlibmin.f holds all the minimiser software, xedlibcom holds large routines for least squares, charges, chirality etc.. Xedlibgrf.f holds graphical calls and specific GL libraries, as does xedlibgtf.f. The xedlibgtf.f library contains SGI GL-specific calls and multi-molecule manipulations. Xedlibutl.f holds utility software and i/o routines and xedlibunx.f is a small library with UNIX-specific calls.
